Now that Dry January is over, I get to bust out my new toy!
Shoutout to my amazing husband for making this cocktail smoking box from Williams Sonoma, one of my Christmas gifts. I’ve been *so* excited to use it.
And since I missed out on “National Spicy Margarita Day” last week, I decided to make that my first concoction. As if a mezcal marg couldn’t get any smokier, I figured why not!
– 2oz Mezcal (I used @ilegalmezcal )
– 1oz Agave
– 1/2oz Triple Sec
– Juice of 1 lime
– 5 Jalapeno Slices
– Cayenne Pepper
– Chilli Powder
In a cocktail shaker, muddle 2-3 jalapenos slices. Add in mezcal, agave, triple sec, and juice of one lime. Top with ice, and shake for 30 seconds. Pour over ice and enjoy!
*I took it a step further and smoked my cocktail for a bit to give an added smokiness for more cozy winter vibes!
